I know 2-3 magazines full and I'm done.
I have a KelTec 32 as well, and I thought the Ruger LCR had worse recoil...but I have not shot the KelTec for some time. Maybe I am just out of practice. I have not had time to shoot for a while, and I have been shooting mostly light stuff to get back into it. (I am a big fan of 32 Long, even though it combines the punch of 22 rimfire with the expense of 45 ACP.) I will have to try the KelTec and compare.
And whoo, boy, TheGunClinger, you must have both hands and nerves of steel to touch off an LCR with .357s in it. Could I ask what load you used? Do they make they make special "snubby" loads for .357?
